Sales Tip: Make space for yourself

July 2, 2024
Space is limited on a tool truck, but having dedicated "office" space can make all the difference.

On their last truck, Mac Tools distributors AJ Bowlin and Stewart Brown didn’t have much of a desk space, so now they have a customized desk with a matching work surface. The desk and work surface feature a “really cool Mac Tools logo with an American flag inlay,” Bowlin describes. 

But what he’s most excited about with the desk is that it allows him to be more organized and better prepared for the day. He can have his notes right in front of him, take payments, do research, and with his extra monitor, he can show customers products or other information that they’re looking for. 

Overall, when designing and setting up their new truck, Bowlin and Brown were looking for ways to modernize their business. Not only for their own sake but for the sake of their customers as well.
